n eye, a majority would not have experienced useful vision. With chemosurgery, only ten percent of patients lost an eye.

In general, patients tolerated the procedure well with minimal side effects that resolved once

addressed. In only four out of 46 eyes treated did severe complications occur which eventually led to blindness. All four eyes had received previous extensive treatment consisting of intravenous chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Due to the overwhelming success observed with chemosurgery, Gobin says this treatment option has considerably reduced the number of conventional treatments, including the toxic intravenous chemotherapy, and most significantly, the number of eye losses. "The results really do have the potential to change the entire treatment approach to advanced retinoblastoma. In our center, chemosurgery is now the first line of treatment for this potentially devastating condition."

Retinoblastoma occurs in approximately 350 - 400 children each year. Approximately 80 percent of patients are diagnosed under 3 years of age.
